The other day, Mack’s daughter, clutching her much-revised resume, cover letter and wearing one of her mother’s navy blue outfits, headed to class for her mock job interview. Apparently it went well.
But after years of interviewing applicants for jobs and training programs Mack has sat through some very bad interviews. Here’s how to make a good first impression:
• Be on time – a basic time management skill.
• Be prepared – it says you care.
• Be interested – it’s not all about you; ask questions.
• Be focused – keep to the point and fill in details if asked.
• Be clean – shower, shave, clean, shine, press and brush.
